    Hey Khalil, we don't have a Slic3r profile for our MK3 as we primarily use CANVAS with our printer. Hopefully another user is able share their profile!

    Sadness. There are simpify3d and Cura profiles for mk3 maintained by Prusa staff on Prusa forums..... I think the idea was to provide the best experience for user even if they choose to use another slicer.

    People really hate how slow the canvas website is and they are seeking alternatives.

    "Hopefully another user is able share their profile!"

    ME - LOL

    For the most recent version of prusa Slic3r your directions are a good start but Chroma will still complain about2 things to user when they import gcode:

    1. hasn't set tool offsets to 0 (even with instructions above chroma still complained about offsets not being 0)

    2. if model is to big - Chroma will complain there is no room for purge block on build plate

     

    FIX issue 1.

    goto - 

    Printer Settings / Single extruder MM setup :

    Set "Extra loading distance: 0

    FIX issue 2.

    goto -

    Print Settings / Multiple Extruders / Wipe tower: uncheck (Chrome will make a wipe tower)

    @Johnny Yeu

    Does chroma process or ignor variables and conditionals that a slicer puts in start/end gcode?

    example

    {if layer_z < max_print_height}G1 Z{z_offset+min(layer_z+30, max_print_height)}{endif} ; Move print head up

    or 

    M221 S{if layer_height<0.075}100{else}95{endif}

    Hey Khalil, sorry for the delay! Chroma and CANVAS do nor process these conditionals in the start/end GCode. Thanks for sharing some information about the proper Slic3r settings as well.

    YAY

    got it working! it's almost there as I wish. One question though: What's the reason for the Print Setting/Skirt Loops(minimum)=0?

    I like this ring around the object because I get an extra round of 'balancing' and testing the extrusion and speed. Additionally it signs me clearly when the second layer starts. Would be great if it's 'allowed' for use with Palette too (actually i forgot and printed with the skirt - no problem).

    cheers!

    FYI: to see the "Retraction when tool is disabled" options in the newest version of Slic3r (1.42.0-beta1) you have to hit the "Single Extruder Multi Material" checkbox under "Capabilities" (Printer settings->General)
